    1. I did not want AN AMISH NOEL to end. The conversations between Luke and Emma were so heartbreaking at times and I love how Emma realizes that Luke is so much more than his past and the troubles he brought to his family. This story is filled with humor, lost love, forgiveness, and how everyone deserves a second chance. Patricia Davids is going to pull you right in from the very beginning and having you cheering for Emma and Luke. I had a hard time putting this book down as I had to know what was [...]


    2. I enjoyed this new Amish romance from a classy writer. Patricia Davids throws her heart into the characters and settings. This tale follows on from An Amish Harvest with some of the same characters but you don't need to have read that book. A young man went to the city and his Amish family was scandalised when he was jailed for drug offences. Now cleaned up he is back home on the farm but has lost his chance to be one of the community - and to win the lovely traditional girl on the next farm. Bu [...]


    3. I've no interest in Amish fiction with this story-line. I wanted a warm and happy feel to this Christmas read; but it was page after page of Emma's and Luke's repetitive doubting. The story focused on Luke once again struggling to remain true to his faith. Is there nothing left to write about in Amish Fiction?


    4. This book is fantastic, Patricia Davids is one of my favorite authors, This book picks up where the first one left off. Luke is trying to make amends for his troubled past. Emma is not sure she can trust him with her heart a second time. I love revisiting the people you meet in other books and patricia does a gret job of keeping the stories connected



    5. "Amish Noel" the delightfully romantic and heart-warming story I won through / First Reads comes to life in the Amish community of Bowman's Crossing when Luke Bowman an ex-con and ex-druggie saves Roy Swartzentruber from a watery death after the snowmobile he's riding crashes through the ice of a nearby river. A man guilt-ridden because of his teenage rebellion that not only brought shame and humiliation to his parents but heartbreak to Emma Swartzentruber Roy's sister when he left town and ende [...]


    6. Originally posted HERE.This was my second foray into Amish fiction (though I’ve read much more of it since receiving this review book), and it was a much bigger success for me than the first one. I still find the whole Amish world confusing and occasionally hypocritical, but author Patricia Davids presented me with a much more nuanced version of things and much more three-dimensional characters, so I was on board with the people in this book in a way I wasn’t with the first.I suppose you cou [...]


    7. "An Amish Noel" by Patricia Davids is the second book in the series, The Amish Bachelors. I absolutely loved "An Amish Noel" and I have to say it's my favorite so far.Emma Swartzentruber is the oldest of her two brothers in her Amish family. She's been helping her father to raise her brothers, which kind of out her life on hold. But she was kind of forced to not to follow the young man who won her heart so long ago. Does Emma want to find a husband?Luke Bowman find himself in some trouble as a y [...]


    8. An Amish Noel is a novel in the Amish Bachelor’s series by Patricia Davids. Emma Swartzentruber had a well-ordered life. She kept house for her father and two brothers. She made sure meals were on the table, house cleaned, and Roy and Aiden accounted for. Her world had been turned upside down when Luke Bowman had left town when they were teens and refused to take her with him. He then got hooked on drugs and when his brother went to find him, he and Joshua were caught in a drug ring and placed [...]

    10. An Amish Noel is the next book in the Amish Bachelor series, and this book focus’s on Luke. If you remember Luke from the first book, he carries a lot of guilt and pain; he was responsible for Samuel’s accident.

    11. 4 STARSAn Amish Noel was a little different from the average Amish story. Luke Bowman made some real bad choices in his past. He has to learn forgiveness and decide if he wants a Amish lifestyle or go back to English. I admit to liking Luke.Emma has to learn to forgive and let go of the past too. She is keeping some secrets that are weighing her down. Luke broke her heart when he left and would not take her with him. Now her father wants her to marry a neighbor widower.I liked seeing Luke being [...]


    12. This is the second book in the Amish Bachelors series, but not having read the first was able to read and enjoy fully. Good looking, hard working, mistake making Luke returns home to his Amish home where he is to finish off his parole. His return saves the life of one, and turns the life of another, Emma upside down, once more. As teenagers they had dated and she had almost run off with him, except he forced her to go home to her family.Enjoy this quick, clean, fun read as we get to share in the [...]


    13. Fabulous book to read and fall in love with Patricia's writing style. Emma though she would never see Luke again let alone have to deal with him after he left and wouldn't let her go with him. Emma finds out that her father is sick and hasn't much time left. Her father wants Luke's help in going through his collection of items to sell and set up in the hardware store that he wants to open. Knowing that Luke will be close has Emma in a predicament. She still loves Luke but is unwilling to tell hi [...]


    14. I love the rich depth in the stories Patricia Davids delivers and this one has a unique hook that reeled me in. Luke's past plays a huge role in his present and has the potential to jeopardize his futureif he lets it. He has to learn to believe in himself so he can have the confidence to put the past behind him for good. While Emma strives to live the same important Amish principle of forgiveness, she finds forgetting is much harder. And sometimes a knee-jerk reaction to judge can interfere with [...]


    15. First - isn't that cover pretty? I love Christmasy covers :) I continue to enjoy the Bowman family. And anytime I get to spend some more time with Hannah, I'm a happy camper! Luke and Emma have a profound story, appropriate for one of the most profound holidays of the year. Luke isn't sure he can be trusted with redemption. Emma isn't sure he can either. The journey that Davids walks them down is one that more people need to take. Maybe not literally HOPEFULLY not literally. But in spirit. In th [...]


    16. This is the second time I've tried to read and review this book. I managed to get through it the first time, but I didn't get a chance to write my review. I decided to read it a second time to re-fresh my memory before reviewing.I'm glad I did, because I remembered why I put off writing the review earlier.This story was not a very festive one, at least not for me. The angst and anger throughout the novel just took away any pleasure to be found at the end. The character's just didn't click with m [...]


    17. Author, Patricia Davids has stole a place in my heartSimply LOVE the way she weaves her stories together! I have kept all of her books so that I can reread them again, one day!Don't miss out on her relatively new series, THE AMISH BACHELORS! They are easy reading, but just smack full of interesting details! It is very hard for me to pick a favorite book, of hers, because the her AMISH novels have all been 5***** star stories! I don't think you will be disappointed!


    18. I won a copy of this book in a Giveaway. Amish Noel is a clean, Christian romance that features the struggle to remain faithful to the Amish community as well as doubts on romance. If you are a fan of Amish romance, this is certainly for you! However, if you like your novels a little spicier (like me), go ahead and skip this one.



    19. I really enjoyed this book. I loved the two main characters, Emma and Luke. They had a lot of "past" to overcome and it was fun to watch them do that.






    20. I personally love redemption stories. I love when a hero has made his mistakes and he is struggling to find the inner good, the man he can be. Luke was one of my favorite characters from An Amish Harvest, so I was ecstatic when his story would be next in the Amish Bachelor series. Luke is an ex-convict and drug user, who didn’t know if he would stay with his family in the Amish community or go to be English. However, when he sees that his childhood sweetheart Emma still hasn’t married, the g [...]


    21. Emma has a hard time even being in the same room as Luke. It wasn't always like this. In fact Luke courted her during their last year of school and in their running around years. But then Luke decided to leave the Amish and turn English.Emma wanted to go with Luke because she loved him. But he rejected her love and broke her young heart. Things didn't go well for Luke in the English world. He wound up in prison for using and dealing in drugs. Now he's back home with the Amish . A condition of hi [...]




    22. I find these Amish stories very relaxing and rewarding.The moral of the story is also usually right on the mark.
